Hi, welcome to Just Answer. Sorry to hear you are having appliance trouble, I know how frustrating that can be! My name is ***** ***** I look forward to helping you!
You would need to modify the control board by desoldering the alarm from it. I would strongly advise against that as you will likely damage the control. Have you tried unplugging it for at least 15 minutes to allow a full discharge and reset of the control?
May I please have your model number so I am able to provide you with accurate, model specific information?
So if the temperatures are not affected, the issue is not one with the door closing but rather the alarm circuit on the board. That will require the board, number 36 in the diagram at the link below, be replaced.
The link below is to the part you will need from a highly recommended company rated A+ with the Better Business Bureau. They offer a 100% money back guarantee, EVEN ON INSTALLED ELECTRICAL PARTS, for an entire year! They are the only company to allow returns on installed parts for a refund and offer a FULL ONE YEAR WARRANTY!
That is the main control for the refrigerator. You could try removing the alarm but if you damage the board, you will not have a working refrigerator at that point and the problem becomes much different and urgent.
The alarm is on the dispenser board, the little black round thing at the link below. That is what would need to be removed to silence it.
There is no bolt, that is the speaker you see. It is soldered onto the board with micro points of solder. Once you access the board with a soldering iron, you risk damaging the board with the heat or shorting the micro solder points. They are barely able to be seen with a naked eye.
You could place a piece of foam over it and tape it in place.
